Dress for Success Receives Donation Totaling $500,000
Today, the Walmart Foundation presented a $475,000 grant to support Dress for Success Worldwide’s Paving the Way Forward program. This grant supports Walmart’s Global Women’s Economic Empowerment Initiative and will fund 15 Dress for Success Career Centers across the U.S., allowing them to build capacity in their training programs and serve more clients through increased operating hours.
The Foundation is also presenting a $25,000 grant to the newly founded Dress for Success Northwest Arkansas affiliate. This grant will help the affiliate get off the ground and support women in the local community. The local affiliate will be having a clothing sorting volunteer event after the presentation.
